Krewe of Seahorse Parade
The only Lundi Gras parade in South Mississippi rolled through Bay St. Louis today.
The annual Krewe of Seahorse Parade is a unique experience in the fact that instead of riding on traditional floats, krewe members hand craft and design golf carts in association with the pirate theme selected by the king and queen.
One of the krewe members tells News 25 why it is important for the City of Bay St. Louis to keep this tradition alive. Captain Johnson said, “It keeps us connected to the historic side of the Bay and then we also have fun doing it. It promotes our city here and our citizens and we just enjoy getting into the Mardi Gras spirit of things as well.”
Krewe of the Seahorse takes its name for the USS Sea Horse and the Battle of Bay St. Louis between the United States Navy and the British Navy on December 13th, 1814.
